In June 2016, it will be revealed that hackers broke into the computer network of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and someone nicknamed “Guccifer 2.0” will post documents that appear to come from the network. One such file is dated from May 26, 2015. It contains advice on how Clinton can win the presidency, even though the Democratic presidential primary campaign has just begun and the DNC is supposed to be neutral until one Democratic candidate wins the nomination.

A portion of the file states: “Reporter Outreach: Working through the DNC and others, we should use background briefings, prep with reporters for interviews with GOP candidates, off-the-record conversations and oppo pitches to help pitch stories with no fingerprints and utilize reporters to drive a message.” The same document also advises: “Use specific hits to muddy the waters around ethics, transparency, and campaign finance attacks on HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton].”

The document specifies it is addressed to the DNC, but is not clear who exactly wrote the file. (Inquisitr, 6/15/2016)
